How to change key of a song?

Hi - I'm a newbie here, so forgive me if I'm clueless about a lot of things. I want to change the key of an entire song from, say, F-key to D-key. How am I supposed to go about doing that?

Hi
Hilight your song, click effect, scroll down to change pitch and select the key you want. You may have to juggle other settings after you change.

You should be aware that the further you "de-tune" the song, the worse the sound quality will be.
If it doesn't matter about the tempo of the song, then the "Change Speed" effect gives better sound quality (but both tempo and pitch will change together - just like playing a record at the wrong speed).
